Soft Tissue Injury
Chattanooga Soft Tissue Injury Lawyers
Soft tissue injuries make up the bulk of personal injury claims, whether from an auto accident or a work accident. The soft tissue of the body is basically anything other than the skeletal system. Cuts, bruises and sprains are what we most commonly identify as soft tissue injuries.
Much of the time, these kinds of soft tissue injuries can be treated with first aid — bandages, hot or cold compresses and rest, but an injury accident doesn’t have to be severe enough to cause a broken bone to be considered serious. Whiplash, lacerations and severe bruising can add up to large medical bills, temporary disability and ongoing treatment with a therapist or doctor.
TN Settlement Claims for Soft Tissue Injury
Adrenaline flow prevents most accident injury victims from even recognizing the pain of an injury until hours or days after the incident. That’s why it’s so important to seek medical advice anytime you are involved in an accident. Insurance company reps are well-versed in arguing for their best interests in an accident claim. If you delay medical treatment the insurance company may use that against you. Documentation of an injury as soon as possible after an accident keeps the settlement claim in your court.
Regardless of when you sought medical treatment after a personal injury accident, ask The Insiders of The McMahan Law Firm to investigate the value of your accident settlement.
